Thanks to the more than 24,000 PETA and peta2 members and supporters who—all in a single day—urged Dynamite to stop selling angora, the company announced this week that it will no longer sell angora, which comes from rabbits who have their fur ripped out of their sensitive skin as they scream in pain or who are tethered or suspended in the air while they are aggressively sheared. We’re pleased that Dynamite made the compassionate decision to stop selling a product that causes rabbits a tremendous amount of pain, distress, and suffering. To date, 220 retailers around the world, including Gap Inc., French Connection, H&M, and now Dynamite, are angora-free.
